    One thought on “Ochtend in Jenin”

    1. i wrote it so, my rating isn t all that relevant to readers but for what it s worth, it came from a place of love, and I put pieces of my heart in this narrative.

    2. I don t knowI ll try.This was, most certainly, the most heartbreaking novel I have ever, so far, come to read I literally left it aside and swam in a river of my own tears and hatred I can t really write a review that will give this novel all of its credit I just know that I hated myself, I hated being an Arab And I hated that words will never, ever portray the true situation in Palestine, nor the death statistics will embrace the idea of death itself I cried in nearly every single chapter of th [...]

    3. I have had a hard time trying to review this book because it affected me on so many emotional levels I almost feel like I am betraying the characters to say how much I enjoyed this book just because it was such an intense insight into a part of the world I knew so little about Abulhawa enlightened and devestated me at the turn of every page I learned about the beauty of Palestine, its people and their hardships, the wars, the savagery and the intense hatred we can impose on one another I was ash [...]

    4. Ono sto je knjiga Lovac na zmajeve bila za Avganistance to je ova knjiga za Palestince Svi znamo za stradanja Jevreja i stvaranje Izraela a manje su nam poznata stranja Palestinaca koje su Jevreji isterali sa njihovih ognji ta i pretvorili ih u izbeglice i stradalnike Ovo je pri a o malim ljudima i njihovim tragi nim sudbinama

    5. Re reading this one for February 2016 sit in Book Club Originally read in 2011 Isn t it wonderful when a book like Mornings in Jenin inspires readers to discuss, think about or research further for information in order to educate and better understand the conflicts of the world Mornings in Jenin is an amazing read and an insight to the lives of the Abulheja family who are an ordinary Palestinian family living just before, during and since the creation of the state of Israel.For me I had known ve [...]

    6. A Palestinian perspective on the conflict in the Middle East Yes, this book delivers that A good novel No, not that.This book starts with the idyllic lives of Palestinian villagers in the early 1940s It moves on to describe their displacement into a refugee camp, where the main character, Amal, is born From there it mostly follows her life up until the early 2000s Amal grows up in the camp, but a scholarship is her ticket out and from there her life takes some interesting turns until she finally [...]

    7. Disclosure Won in giveaway.I suppose this is a type of book that will get some people s panties in a twist, so let me say a couple things.1 Never, ever, listen to just one side of the story There needs to be fiction told from the Palestinian point of view just as there needs to be fiction told from the Israeli point of view.2 Who wants just to read books that don t challenge them 3 It really isn t biased Okay, had to say that Mornings in Jenin is actually a surprising good novel It also is amazi [...]

    8. I have to admit my ignorance in the continuing turmoil between Israel and Palestine It seems that it is a conflict that has been going on forever and that many people in the States are at a lose to understand so we watch the news call them all crazy then go about our live This novel opened my eyes to this situation and made me sad, but most of all it made me angry Angry that in a world of mass media and all the technological advances we possess that these atrocities are still going on in many pa [...]

    9. I m speechless For non Palestinians, it s important to read this novel since it summarizes the story of Palestine the story of great love and great loss.For Palestinians, it s good though painful to see our miseries put into words.May I can write about some points of this outstanding novel ,later.The lovely signature of my Palestinian sister Susan Abulhawa on my copy of Mornings in Jenin image error

    10. Here s what I wrote about this book written by a friend of mine on the BN website Everyone should read Susan Abulhawa s The Scar of David This story of a Palestinian family s journey through four generations of Israeli occupation offers beautiful, balanced, and intensely humanistic insight into the experience of both Palestinians and Israelis Abulhawa artfully demonstrates how both occupier and occupied fall victim to this conflict, yet she paints a clear picture of the magnitude of its effect o [...]

    11. My takeaway message from this book is that women should be running the world.The story follows four generations of the Palestinian Abulheja family and their friends It begins in the 1940 s when they are first driven from their ancestral lands in Ein Hod, continues through the war of 1967 and the Lebanon War of 1982, and concludes with the Israeli bulldozing and massacre at the Jenin refugee camp in April 2002 Theirs is a life of perpetual loss, perpetual grieving, and constant uncertainty The na [...]

    12. What a wonderful yet hearbreaking ride this book was Firstly, I ll start with the fact that as soon as I saw the cover and title of this book I knew I had to read it In 1993 94, I answered an add in the paper to go and work as an Au Pair for a family in Israel I can t explain why Israel, there were hunderds of adds for France, Italy, USA etc and one solitary add for Israel As a child at school we were asked to pick a country to do a project on and I picked Israel I m not Jewish, nor am I Muslim [...]

    13. I appreciated this story It opened my eyes to the other side of the story, the Muslim side of Israel I liked the writing style some of the sentences were beautiful And I am forever greatful to be born in NZ we have our troubles but we are safe This reads like non fiction but is fiction set around actual dates It is heart breaking and terifying and tears will roll down your cheeks at certain spots It s a story of children burying a baby, of a community round up and taken from their land, of a los [...]

    14. A competitor of THE KITE RUNNER and A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS, and edges ahead of them at the end and it is strictly UNBIASED I am speechless but I will try my best to tell you what this book did to me.How many books you have read that made you love, hate, cry, angry, remorse, guilty, shiver, tremble and all the senses that a human being can experience This book will make you feel human.How many books you read that had great characters, wonderful storytelling, expertly constructed structure, nece [...]
